“Workforce development is a key component of the #OurMaryvale initiative. The success of communities depends on residents’ ability to participate in the economy in meaningful ways,” Councilman Daniel Valenzuela said. “When people are able to find, keep, and advance in their careers, they have the resources to invest in their community too.”
“Rewarding employment and economic opportunity can revitalize a community. We are thrilled to be a partner on the #OurMaryvale initiative and support the Governor’s goal of expanding Arizona’s economy as we help Maryvale job seekers reach their full potential while they simultaneously strengthen their city,” said Michael Wisehart, Assistant Director for the Department of Economic Security (DES) Division of Employment and Rehabilitation Services (DERS).
